An interview with Reese Tisdale, Research Director for Renewable Power Generation at Emerging Energy Research

From Concentrate(January 29, 2009) As the U.S. and the world get serious about solving the world's energy crisis, new forms of renewable energy are being developed that could be key to eliminating our dependence on fossil fuels and ushering in a green economy. A new technology called 'concentrated solar power' is emerging as a potentially-viable source of renewable energy -- and could transform the American Southwest into one of the most lucrative solar power markets around. But concentrated solar isn't perfect yet.

To shed some light on the advantages and shortcomings of this new technology, we caught up with Reese Tisdale, Research Director for Renewable Power Generation at Emerging Energy Research.
